Ticket Director Mark Wagner today had a word of caution for fans who will be attending the Packers' Wild Card Playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons at Lambeau Field Saturday night.
The message: Be sure you have the "right" ticket to present at the stadium gate.
Explaining that tickets for both the Wild Card playoff and a possible NFC Championship Game in "Lambeau" were mailed out together, Wagner emphasized, "The ticket for Saturday night's game against the Falcons is the blue Playoff ticket. The NFC Championship Game ticket is a red ticket."
–Parking provisions for Saturday's game have been announced by the club and PMI, which oversees the stadium parking lot.
For fans with green or gold season passes, parking will be $25 per vehicle upon presentation of either season pass to a parking lot attendant, according to PMI's Rick Pruski, who said handicapped parking also will be $25.
Private box holders' 2002 season parking passes will not be honored, according to Jennifer Ark, the Packers' director of premium guest services, who noted that new parking passes specifically for Saturday night's game have been sent to all box-holders.
Those individuals who wish to arrange off-site parking in advance may do so by calling TicketStar at 800-895-0071.
–Commander Al Timmerman of the Green Bay Police Department, citing the presence of increased security for the playoff game, cautioned fans to get to the stadium early if they hope to be in their seats for the kickoff.
"Because of the security that will be in place, it does take additional time to pass through the gates," he said, "so it would behoove fans to get to the stadium early if they hope to be in their seats for the kickoff."
As has been the case ever since increased security has been in place, no carry-ins will be permitted, Timmerman also reminded.
The stadium parking lots will open at 3 o'clock and the stadium gates at 4:45.
